Meeting our friends October 22, 2010
Wednesday was the day we planned to meetup with some of our DND friends. First up Jenae picked us up around 11AM to take us out to see LA. Unfortunately it was raining all day, so we decided to see if there was anything fun to do inside, and no shopping 😉
We tried to get to the LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art), but they are closed on Wednesday. We did walk around to check out the famous Tar Pits that are next door. Stinky stuff 😉 At the Tar Pit museum we asked for information on other places to see, the Modern Art Museum was also closed so we decided to go to The Getty. The Getty is a really big museum with multiple buildings on top of a mountain hill, you get to ride a train (just like in the amusement parks) to get to the museum. It’s a beautiful place which seemed kind of sad in the bad weather. At The Getty we went to the exhibition: Engaged Observers: Documentary Photography since the Sixties. We couldn’t have picked a more depressing exhibition, especially since we started the day feeling down that the holiday is almost over and I have to leave early Friday. But it sure was impressive to see what photography can do.
Then we hit traffic to go to Sal and Natalies place in downtown where we met up with Natalie and Chris. After drinks we went out to Miceli’s Italian Restaurant for dinner where Muylani with her daughter Olivia and Sal arrived a bit later. We had a really fun night with them, and I feel good to know that there are people who will take care of Daniëlle when I leave…
It was a great day hanging out with friends and took our mind of the end of the vacation.
